SUMMARY AND KEY TAKEAWAYSWhenever crypto firms and institutions want to borrow money, they often find it challenging to take out a loan from traditional lenders such as banks; and when they turn to DeFi, these protocols’ overcollateralisation requirements often eat into the borrowers’ ability to efficiently use their capital. Because of this, Clearpool, founded in 2021, came up with a solution, where institutional borrowers can access unsecured loans directly from their ecosystem.
